    Looking for gravelly bass sound

    My experience of playing pre-recorded reggae is that it's more about lower mid than sub-bass, and most studios use a compounder in the mix. 😎

    Gregg Allman band ?

    See, the problem is that you actually have to care, and I, being soul & reggae focussed, really don't ................... ............... end of.............. 😎

    How quiet can they be? (500+ watt amps)

    I've a Marshall 100 + 100 Valve rack amp - hated the fan, got three slow runners installed instead - solved! 😎

    Gregg Allman band ?

    Blimey - that's gotta be a modern definition! Course this were all fields when the Bellamy Brothers, Allman Brothers, Country Joe and numerous others invented(?) the 'country rock' thing.. neatly splitting away from Prog Rock, Bill Haley R'n' R & other Rock 'n' roll divisions........... ymmv Other opinions are (probably) available.......... 😎

    Michael Jackson covers- Yes or No?

    In the context of this thread, it only matters whether 'you' think it's a good idea to play MJ material at the moment or not, surely? 😎

    Michael Jackson covers- Yes or No?

    It's not really my thing, musically, but I think I'd try & avoid stuff likely to p*ss people off - 😎

    No Prices On New Guitars in PMT

    As a matter of interest (or not) I run a clothing shop - if our window display stuff is clearly priced, we get more walk-in sales than if it's not - (I know because we've deliberately tried not pricing it, to see......) 😎

    No Prices On New Guitars in PMT

    It always was that a displayed price was an 'invitation to treat', thus saving shops of the bother of charging the stated price if it was wrong - - if this has changed, perhaps someone could point me to the appropriate links - I've read the above link, but I remain unconvinced as to where the 'invitation to treat' stuff is 'now' unlawful.......... 😎

    Covers that 'made' the Original

    A mate of mine had a version by Kris Ife (1967) - it was on MGM & I thought it was the original - until I checked it out tonight - live & learn, eh guys.......... 😎

    Exoctica? pah! gimme a p bass

    I went to one of those in Wuppertal a long time ago - it was more a dive bar, I had a nasty dose of flu & the woman behind the bar was practically sha...ng the only other customer. After about one drink, I left, thus proving that shnaps does not act as a universal cure........... 😎

    dumbass delivery award this week? Parcelforce

    I'm sure that some delivery guys just hate the fooking job and its customers ............ 😎

    Use of image

    Same difference - I have a large pic on the front of my shop showing someone wearing a brand of clothingthat we sell - I get totally bored with explaining to people that the pic is representative of the brand, NOT my shop stock (which is newer & totally different)........... 😎

    Ska - Advice Needed

    ;Pressure Drop' would be a great start - just learn one or two numbers properly and get the feel of how it's done .......... musically it's simple enough but different. If you can get hold of a copy, Club Ska 67 is a good value album to practice with - Whine and Grine Club Ska 67 is the same + one track extra - Amazon have one for £3.25 😎
